Mountain Blood Fest III

If none of the above lights a breathy, beautiful and boundless fire in your brain’s musical control center then you may be ripe for a visit to Mountain Blood Fest III: All Mountains Must Crumble. That’s the name of the completely cray and awesomely awesome DIY music festival to be held between March 11 and 13 in various venues around the city and in the surrounding hills. Originally an event created by and made real by the mysterious and now dissipated Goathead Record Collective, this year’s revisioned epic includes all-ages performances at Duke City Soundstage (2013 Ridgecrest SE). On Friday night, March 11, punk rockers Weedrat and Radio Flyer, a band from Tejas take the stage at 7pm; the Saturday night, March 12, 7pm iteration of the festival features a reunion set by Arroyo Deathmatch and the folk metal meandering of Nevada’s Firewater Folklore among other esoteric and engaging acts. The completely huge and blazing schedule of events and bands (30+) as well as a list of venues and ticket information is available.
